Happy last week!!!!!!

I hope everyone had fun yesterday whether you were with me at Ceder Point or enjoying a relaxed day at school or home.

For the rest of the week, we are doing a Reconstruction Webquest. This is a summative assignment to wrap up our Reconstruction unit. It is due THURSDAY! If you know you are going to be absent any of those days or when it is due, it is your responsibility to figure out how to get me the assignment. You may type your answers and email it to me, take pictures of your work and email me, or find another way. But students will not be excused for work unless they have a doctors note or have spoken to me about an issue. I have attached a copy of the assignment. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
